, the level of economic interdependence between britain and germany was such that it was in some ways madness these two countries went to war. there was a very famous book written by a young historian who talked about the fact that perhaps britain should not have gone to war. that this was craziness for britain to do it and it was the pity of war. wait a minute. that historian was niall ferguson. >> yes, before we end the rebuttal portion of this debate, i'd like to allow dr. kissinger the last word. >> i don't know whether one can reverse the order of participants up here, because i think it's three to one against my friend niall. our chinese friend is saying that china has suffered a great deal, has been provoked through a century of western exploitations and that it's not trying to dominate the world. as i understand what he is saying it is this -- when the west wants to discuss climate or the financial assistance, our tendency is to say china can be a stakeholder. it can be a participant in a system they did not themselves participate in creating. so the issue is whether it is possible to

to lend money to than singapore or hong kong, france, germany britain or indeed canada. i believe when this historic episode is written, michael, they will lay the blame squarely on the part the republicans and personally on john boehner in particular. let me explain why. for ten years on international markets we've known about the deficit, the trade deficit, and knew it had to be sorted out and were looking for an approach on that and you've had various commissions in that regard. what the republicans decided to do was up the ante. accelerate things and have the fight now. and what in effect did they do? we'll use the debt ceiling, meaning they're saying to the rest of the world, you knee $14 trillion we've length to you and our own people? come tuesday we may not pay any interest on it and may not repay the principle. they hold the rest of the world to ransom. what do they get in return for that? remember here from s&p, about $4 trillion of spending cuts or revenue increases to start bending the curve down. when obama was talking to boehner three weeks ago we getting towards that. no

's a fascinating story. the murdochs basically drew a line in the sand at the hearings in britain a couple days ago. there's a lot of terrible things going on, a lot of people are culpable, but we didn't know about it. they did a good job i thought. the problem with the story, it's got to stand up. if it stands up, they escape. if it doesn't, they're in big trouble. some of the executives blamed, are saying, hey, we told james murdoch, james murdoch didn't understand why they paid people off, he was new at the job, he agreed to go along with it. the legal manager and the former editor of the "news of the world," two very senior executives at news international have issued aut!ñ statement say that's not true, we actually briefed him in detail on, he knew exactly what was happening. it's not clear if that's the sort of start or trend and people are concerned and say the murdochs got it all wrong and they were lying basically to parliament, then they're in big trouble. >> with all you know and your experience, you working in the community, do the murdoch statements align with what you've heard about
britain's largest paper. one of rupert murdock's people is going to test. brooks was released on bail after being arrested over the weekend. she was heading the news corp. media division when she stepped down. she turned herself in and is cooperating with police but continues to deny any wrong doing. late last night, london's police commissioner abruptly resigned. the head of police there. paul stevenson announcing he's leaving his post that his unit they are investigating was corrupt. had close ties with news international's now defunct news of the world. pat, i want to invite you in on this. where does this go? it's clear how cozy the relationship was between the politicians and the media. >> right now, it's going up to james murdock. quite frankly, people are going to seize upon this. it's a disaster in england. there was a bribery scandal. the head of scotland yard is going to resign. i think they are going to try to bring it to the united states. i don't know that anything has been done here. somebody might have hacked into the 9/11 folks. i don't think the wall street journal ha

of the allegations that journalists paid, bribed, basically, paid police officers in britain for information. in my view, that would be a violation of the foreign corrupt practices act. and that would be very problematic. you can't put a corporation in prison, right? but you can find the chief executives spoonsable for it. sometimes in cases like this, brooke, there's a federal monitor put in place to change things. bottom line, we want good corporate citizen, right? and we want corporate governance. we want the folks on top, we want the rupert murdochs of the world to take care of business and make sure that their companies are doing the right thing. i think that would probably be the thrust of the investigation here. maybe a change in leadership perhaps. >> who knows. i talked to richard quest and he said there's no way rupert murdoch would go down without a fight. that's a good point. thisst a tough story we covered a coup of years ago. inside cleveland's house of horrors, do you remember this? secret interrogations of a man accused of killing with at least a dozen women and living with their bo
